Just built my first ever Build! Help me out!

Ok so here are the specs:

Case: NZXT Phantom 410
CPU: Intel core I5 2500K (Not overclocked yet since using stock cooler)
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Ram
MB: Asrock z68 Extreme4 Gen3
PSU: Corsair 750W *80 PLus bronze certicified*
RAM: 2 x 4GB Ripjaws x DDR3 (Total 8GB)

My temps are: (Bear in mind i live in the uk now where its quite cold)

MB IDLE: Around 30 Degrees ( Dips to 28 sometimes)

  1. Someone please :P
  2. Yes the temps are fine.
  3. And checking temps at load?
  4. My temps ( i have cpu cooler) :
    CPU : 21 to 24 degrees on idle
    GPU : 35
    MOBO : 30
    Try to check the temps on load.
  5. how do i go about going into load etc and checking it :P
  6. Better if you buy an aftermarket cooler and after that do the tests. If your temp are good in idle in load must be good. The problem is when the temps are high in idle , is not your case.
  7. Temps are normal at idle.

    There are many software you can use to monitor temps:

    HWMonitor http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
    SpeedFan http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
    Real Temp http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/

    Your mobo has temps devices for CPU and Chassis temperature sensing http://europe.asrock.com/downloadsite/manual/Z68%20Extreme4%20Gen3.pdf

    In order to check temps at full load you might need to stress your system. A good free software for the job is AIDA64 Extreme Edition http://www.brothersoft.com/aida64-extreme-edition-427399.html
